Can anyone recommend a structural engineer in Dundee ?

Can anyone recommend a structural engineer in Dundee ?

Heavy rainfall washed away some soil exposing house foundations, want an expert pair of eyes on it to review just in case i need to take some action.

Thanks for any help

Re: CUP 220 - S CUP or Exige v6

Not a bad video, definitely useful. Too much talking about the track though , not enough about the car comparison IMO.

Re: CUP 220 - S CUP or Exige v6

The extra width of the V6 Exige is so much more planted, especially in the wet ... ... The engine note in the V6 is awesome and will bring a few smiles to enhance the driving experience. The SC Elise is a brilliant car and probably the sweet spot of the range, but I preferred the V6 after my test d...

I ike the porous design as it reminds me of my S1. Although back then it was more to do with build quality.

Re: CUP 220 - S CUP or Exige v6

Basically it sounds like you can enjoy making your decision based on emotion (what an opportunity!!) so go drive both then toss a coin. True, but honestly its taken a long time, a lot of financial planning and patience to get here. With 3 young kids I had to get in a position where I didn't feel gu...

Re: CUP 220 - S CUP or Exige v6

I wasn't overly taken by the looks of S3 Exige at first and thought it needed to look meaner and more racy. I think the latest variations look more to my taste with bigger vents and scoops and wings and all that boy stuff. I completely agree with that Jim, the Exige S2 looked mean as hell more so w...

Re: CUP 220 - S CUP

Contact Graham King as he may be selling his V6. It’s in your colour. :wink: Kinger on here. Steve. Has to be said Steve your taste in cars is second to none :lol: Thanks for the heads up, well worth a chat. If you have the T-shirt it needs to be an Exige. :-) Went from a 250 Cup to a Exige Sport 3...

Re: CUP 220 - S CUP

Morning. Another almost there update ... again apologies for my ramblings over the years lads. Hoping to be back in a Lotus next summer if all goes to plan. Find myself completely torn between an Elise V3 derivative and an early Exige v6. Contacted Leven, going to pop in later this year. There is al...

That is a very good looking beast.

Rodger Becker , "Becker Points" i.e seeing the corner of the car using high wheel archers. One of the things i love about a lotus. Nice to understand why this design feature is always there now !
